So I got these around Christmas time, so I've done enough riding with them to form a solid opinion. They look really good, and do provide extra grip while braking and such.
I think they are great if you're commuting or just looking for extra grip on your tank. But if you're looking for the max grip possible, go with Stompgrip Tank Pads. I was expecting something similar to those when I bought these. I thought "if they cost extra, maybe they're better." I wasn't right.
Like I said, they do give extra grip, just not as much as Stompgrips.
On the bright side, when I had stompgrip pads and would ride in jeans, I noticed wear on the jeans in the spot where the jeans were contacting the stompgrip pads (after a few weeks or months). That doesn't happen with these, they're much nicer on your jeans.

I needed a new backpack, and as I like the icon brand, figured I'd give their backpack a try. So far I love it, it's not uncomfortable or anything and it looks even better in person than in the picture. Don't regret buying at all.

I've heard great things about these gloves for a while now and now that I have a pair, I see why. They're around the same price as some of the top of the line a* short cuff gloves, but you get more features and better protection. I was torn between the a* gloves in this price bracket and these. As soon as I watched the videos and read the reviews, the choice was obvious. They were super tight during break in but they fit perfectly now. I really like the super fabric and ring finger/pinky being connected. Also the feel you get from the kangaroo leather in the palm is unreal after you break them in.
Would recommend to anyone looking for a great pair of gloves for a great price. Going to stick with this brand from now on.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Woodcraft Frame Slider Puck These solid replacement pucks are sold separately and work on nearly all models of Woodcraft sliders. It's a good idea for racers to carry a spare in the toolbox. They are replaced with the single perpendicular bolt. The frames on certain bikes are very close to the bodywork, so Woodcraft developed a shorter puck for race purposes. They are 1/4 shorter than the standard replacement pucks. Sold each. Note: Two are required to complete a Woodcraft Frame Slider Base kit.

I bought these for my Fz 09. I really like that they are not hollow like other frame sliders so they will hold up longer during a slide. Only complaint I have is for my bike, it sure looks like the clutch cover would hit before they would do anything. Have not had the chance to test them yet (thankfully), but they would same the frame I'm sure, just not the engine. If I get another bike though, these will be put on.

These gloves are great for summer time riding (I live in CA). I'm going to be getting my third pair of them soon as my second pair is getting worn out. The second pair lasted me roughly a year if not a little longer, which isn't bad for 70 bucks IMO. I went down in my first pair and they protected my hands really well, not even a mark on them, the gloves were done though. So, in short, air flow is great, protection is great and love the style of them. The two things I don't like are 1) you have to be careful while doing the velcro because the material on the finger tips will get frayed if you aren't careful and let it touch the velcro and 2) if the outside temp is lower than 60ish (Fahrenheit) your fingers will freeze. But other than those two things, they're amazing - GREAT bang for the buck.

Bell Vortex, Bell Star, Bell Revolver EVO, Bell RS-1 and Bell Qualifier Faceshield One faceshield to rule them all, this puppy is a direct replacement ClickRelease face shield for Bell Vortex, Star, Revolver EVO, RS-1, and Qualifier Helmets. Leave it to good 'ol American ingenuity to create a line of helmets that all use one face shield, eliminating the need to keep track of tricky nomenclature when trying to order a new shield for your favorite lid. Note: The Gradient shield flows from yellow to clear.

I bought the dark blue iridium version for my helmet recently. I have the dark smoke also, both are awesome! I don't have a single complaint about either. Not to mention they look sick!

Living with the backpack review
Posted July 7, 2015
So after living with the backpack for a while, I still really like it, but I have a big issue with the backpack. I've had it for roughly 4ish months now, and the flap pocket (the one right below the big Icon logo) is attached with Velcro. That is not the issue, the issue is, the Velcro has become MUCH worse than when I first had it. The flap pocket takes VERY little effort to open, and for a riding backpack, I'm sure you can see how that's an issue. Luckily I have only lost one worthless item out of there. It's not a deal breaker, but I would think a company that makes motorcycle products would know that there is wind involved in riding a motorcycle, and manufacture their products accordingly. I can not verify that all of their backpack are like this, I may have just gotten a bad one. If you go with this backpack, just don't put valuable things in that pocket.
I would no longer recommend this product.
